Netanyahu: We will Continue to Protect Our Citizens

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed "my condolences and those of the entire country", Tuesday morning, to the family of Eviatar Borovsky of the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Yitzhar, who was stabbed to death by 23-year-old Salam Mohammed Al-Zaghal of the Samarian Palestinian Authority city of Tulkarm in an attack at the Tapuach Junction. Agence France Presse reports that Al-Zaghal was released last month after serving a three-year sentence in an Israeli jail.

Referring, during a joint appearance with visiting Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic, to the attack and Israel's elimination of a senior Gaza terrorist, Netanyahu said, "We will act, and are acting, in order to defend Israeli citizens."
